2014 BMW 428i Looks Fantastic, Drives Even Better [First Impression]

2014 BMW 428i

The 2014 BMW 428i is an impressive car both in how it looks and in how it drives once you slide behind the wheel and turn on that gloriously powerful engine.

There’s something to be said for a car having presence, and the 2014 BMW 428i has it in spades with a long, low and exceptionally wide profile that put it in command of the road. People notice this car and they notice in a very good way. BMW gave it a track width 2″ wider than the old M3 so they really weren’t messing around.

It’s also got the lowest center of gravity of any BMW and you feel that as you glide along the road. The 2014 BMW 428i is one smooth operator, hugging the road with ease and laughing at corners, but it’s by no means demure.

The 2.0-liter TwinPower inline 16-valve 4-cylinder engine with direct injection will knock your socks off when you hit the gas. It boasts 240 horsepower and 255 lb-ft of torque and is instantly responsive, especially when you throw it into Sport mode. The ride gets slightly harsher and your mpg will suffer, but you simply will not care.

BMW has a knack for creating vehicles that cater to both the driving enthusiast who loves their time behind the wheel and the creature of comfort who wants a sports car experience without the shake, rattle, and roll that it often includes. The 2014 BMW 428i is a sporty coupe that beautifully balances both of those worlds.

Nicole Wakelin fell in love with cars as a teenager when she got to go for a ride in a Ferrari. It was red and it was fast and that was all that mattered. Game over. She considers things a bit more carefully now, but still has a weakness for fast, beautiful cars. Nicole also writes for NerdApproved and GeekMom.
